New Face of America on Amazon's Hot New Releases

Yesterday, I learned that my upcoming new book, "The New Face of America: How the Emerging Multiracial, Multiethnic Majority is Changing the United States," is on Amazon.com's Hot New Releases in Minority Demographic Studies. As of today, it is actually in the top 25 new books for 2013. Here is the link for the Amazon.com Hot New Releases:


Of course, it's very exciting to have another book being published very soon. In fact, most online book stores have listed the date of publication - May 31st, 2013. Yet this is the time to order my book - the pre-order time period before the book is actually published allows individuals to get a fresh take on the book before anyone else.

As I have stated earlier, I believe this book will have a major impact on all of us in the United States. It is very timely book simply because the future is now and we can no longer think that multiracials and multiethnics are an issue of the distant future. Their time is now and it is time for all of us to embrace and recognize our multiracial heritage.

Finally, my new book has already shown that it has a national political impact because of the re-election of President Obama. Many political pundits suggested that one of the major reasons why President Obama was re-elected was due to the significant multiethnic diversity of the U.S. voting base. This diversity in the voting base favored President Obama as many political pundits concluded. Of course, let's not AVOID THE OBVIOUS - President Obama is actually the country's first Multiracial President along with being labeled as the first African American President.

Again, one of my major themes from this book that I love is -- Let's not AVOID THE OBVIOUS! It is time for multiracials and multiethnics to be respected at all levels, communities, families and organizations in the United States and the world!

New Book being Published in 2013: "The New Face of America"

It's finally going to happen. My next book entitled, "The New Face of America: How the Emerging Multiracial, Multiethnic Majority is Changing the United States," will be published in late April or May of this year! This will be my sixth book with my publisher and it truly has been an enjoyable, challenging and exhausting extra activity to write, research and publish these books during the past 13 years.

I love this new book because it allowed me to investigate, learn and share the stories of individuals who are identify themselves as multiracial in the United States. This unique and important book investigates what it means to be multiracial and/or multiethnic in America, examining the issues involved from personal, societal, and cultural perspective.

I particularly love this new book because it's an issue and segment of our population that has been totally neglected in the United States. To me, this is a shame and an embarrassment on our society due to the fact that our society today and in the past do not want to recognize how we really live, have relationships, and families with people of all types of racial and ethnic backgrounds.

Finally, I love this book because it is personal -- it really wasn't a research book. I discovered more about my multiracial background, heritage and family than ever before and truly appreciated the insightful, personal, and cultural information that my multiracial informants shared with me.

Once the book is published, I hope everyone takes the time to read it and seriously think about the thought-provoking issues that I discuss and feel that they need to be acted-upon in our society now. It is time for our major organizations, institutions, leadership, families and individuals to embrace our multiracial world and I truly hope that all of us can live more peacefully together!

If you want to pre-order the book, you can purchase it at any major online bookstore (amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com, booksamillion.com) or directly from my publisher ABC-CLIO at the following link: http://www.abc-clio.com/product.aspx?isbn=9780313385698
